Sources claim the new Nvidia Pascal based chip will be unveiled during a keynote address by the company CEO
The release of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti may not be very far. Source reports claim the new chip by Nvidia will probably be released at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in January 2017.
The chip is also being reported to be released after a keynote address by the Nvidia CEO himself; Jen-Hsun Huang. Although Nvidia has not confirmed the claims about the chip as of yet, but there will be a keynote address.
Further indicating the authenticity of the news is the fact that CES is one of the most-anticipated tech events of the year and it makes sense to unveil a new chip at said event.
In the officially released clip by Nvidia, it was revealed the keynote address will consist of a presentation on topics such as automated cards, Artificial Inteligence, VR and games. Jen Hsun himself will be addressing the crowd during the presentation.
Other previous reports had suggested the GTX 1080 Ti is a high end Pascal-based chip. The chip is capable of featuring 3328 CUDA cores, 1503 MHz base clock and a boost clock of 1,623 MHz. the chip also comes with a 12 GB VRAM.
Numerous experts have already started speculating at the cost with many saying it will be ranged in between $630 to $1,200. According to the analyst PCGamesn the new GTX 1080 Ti will be a great asset for a 4k gaming experience.
If the rumors are true then the chip will most probably compete with its predecessors like GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. After its launch the chip may enter the market in the second quarter of 2017.
The CES (Consumer Electronics Show) will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, with all the events taking place between 3rd till 8th of January, 2017.
